    YEP! Everytime I go to Seattle I never leave without getting my hands on some Dick's.

    Also, Paseo makes some mean grub.

  • If you want a good burger while in Seattle hit up Bob's Burger and Brew, Blazing Onion, Red Mill Burger or Kidd Valley... in that order.

    Plus we do have some of the best seafood in the nation.

    Food, food, food!

    You are way wrong my friend and the masses have spoken.

  • I wouldn't say it's an average burger at best, but it's DAMNED sure overrated. Red Mill smokes In N' Out.

  • Have you guys tried Skillet? I've gotten their burgers off the food truck, but finally made it to the diner. Wow.

    Is this the same as the Pegasus on 85th in Kirkland? If so, did the owner of all the franchises change, or just the Alki one? I have never been there, wondering if I should still check out the Kirkland one.

  • Also, "Dick's is the place where the cool hang out..." I dropped a 20 once and didn't even miss.

    Do the duck..it's lame when I get stuck behind one; but It's cool...great views from Lake Union and it's fun I guess.
    Discovery Park(free), Ft Lawton is there, it's where soldiers embarked to the Pacific. Lots of cool old Govt buildings there and active Navy still live there in some beautiful period housing (lucky bastards!).
    Definitely go to Pioneer Square...not sure why you wouldn't, it's old Seattle, it's where Church is and you can do the Underground tour which is relatively cheap and pretty cool.
    Fremont's fun; but on the cheap just check out Lenin statue and the Troll, other than that it's just a bunch of bars and fixies. I second the locks, go on the Magnolia side though. You can check out Fisherman's terminal first, then drive down commodore to the locks(fish windows are on the Magnolia side, then you can walk across to the Ballard side if you want, also this is close to Discovery park, PM if you want more clear directions, you could do all three in an afternoon this way). Might as well see Snoqualmie Falls if you have a car, it's pretty impressive when the snow's melting.

  • Go to one of the many outstanding seafood restaurants in the area and indulge. Do Ivars on the Pier, check out Salty's on Alki, Anthony's in Des Moines(not Kirkland), the list goes on.
